Best Sources of Omega-3

A food industry newsletter states that “major sources” of DHA and EPA (long chain omega-3 fatty acids) are “fish, flaxseed, canola oil, nuts and avocados.”

Fatty fish are, but the others are not. The plant sources sited contain the short-chain ALA (alpha-linolenic acid) omega-3 fatty acid, which is poorly converted by the body to the more beneficial DHA and EPA.
